no rainfall since September 2009 in the northern part of the country,
forest fires have ignited in the provinces of Lào Cai and Lai Châu.
Moreoever, the Red River is at its lowest in more than 100 years, with
passage by boat currently impossible while regional rice farmers are in
need of water for newly planted seedlings.
southern Mekong Delta is also experiencing water shortages. Worsening
global warming effects have not only reduced Mekong River water levels
to record lows, ocean salt water has encroached an unprecedented 60
kilometers inland this year, threatening 100,000 hectares of rice.
Âu Lạc has also been affected, enduring high temperatures that have
caused hundreds of people to seek medical treatment at local hospitals
for conditions of heatstroke, severe dehydration and other respiratory
We are saddened to know of this suffering caused by the increasingly dire state of our planet.
us act now to bring relief through sustainable choices that help
restore harmony to our Earth’s cycles. As on previous occasions, Supreme
Master Ching Hai spoke during an August 2009 conference in Thailand
about global warming’s critical tolls and the need to curb them.
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), you probably know of global warming related
problems such as the untimely flooding and encroachment of the sea of
the Mekong Delta region – both of which have caused havoc and further
threat to the region’s vital rice and fruit crops. http://www.irinnews.org/Report.aspx?ReportId=88320 http://english.people.com.cn/90001/90777/90851/6909249.htmlhttp://english.vietnamnet.vn/Health/201003/Sweltering-weather-sending-kids-elderly-to-HCMC-hospitals-898122/
This is due
to a combination of sea levels rising, along with the effect of melting
glaciers, which are now causing excessive floods but eventually will
cause drought and vastly diminished water supplies as well.
So we must work quickly to avoid such unwanted outcomes.
the most effective way is the organic vegan diet, organic vegetable
farming. This is also the fastest way to reverse the increased warming
climate to prevent further damage and disaster.
If everyone does
this – be veg – the Earth will begin to cool and we will have more time
to implement the measures to eliminate all the carbon emissions. So
please, be veg,and tell everyone else of these benefits.
